Gayle King Surprised By Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition Cover

The “CBS Mornings” co-anchor expressed her surprise on Tuesday, May 14, during a live taping of the morning show after she learned she is among the cover stars for the magazine’s special edition. Kate Upton and Hunter McGrady also graced the cover and appeared as guests on Tuesday morning where they shared the big news with King.

“I’m on the cover?” King exclaimed as Upton handed her a copy of the magazine. “They told me I was just going to be on the inside.”

King held the magazine in excitement and needed some time to take in the special moment. “This is real,” co-anchor Nate Burleson told King.

As she remained speechless by the big reveal, McGrady stepped in to remind King, 69, of the inclusivity behind the notion of being “sexy.”

“It goes to say – sexy isn’t an age. Sexy isn’t a size. Look how beautiful you look. That’s so inspiring to women of all ages,” McGrady said while pointing to the cover. “Yes girl, you did that.”

King went on to applaud the photographer who shot her swimsuit cover for guiding her through the process by helping her pose in ways that highlighted her beautiful features.

“I just never saw myself this way. I still don’t see myself this way,” King said. “But when I look at that…I go, I look damn good.”
